A website sued by President Barack Obama's re-election campaign for selling T-shirts and other merchandise with the campaign's signature "O" logo is taking down the offending merchandise.
A judge in Washington on Monday agreed to bar Washington-based Demstore.com from selling merchandise with the "O" logo trademarked by the campaign. But the judge had reserved judgment on whether the website should also be barred from selling merchandise with a logo that uses the distinctive "O" as part of the year 2012.
Demstore.com owner Steve Schwat said Thursday he is pulling all items with the "O" logo, not just those the judge required, and is negotiating a settlement with campaign officials. He says about 100 products were affected.
Demstore.com will still sell products with generic messages supporting Obama.
